stage. we are so proud of hillary clinton. [applause] president obama trusts women and women can trust president obama. we have a reason to feel good about where we stand today. with the movement we have built together, we have reason to aim high elie the years to come. -- aim high in the years to come. last cycle, we more than quintupled the size of the economy -- our community. we're using technology to open our doors to another generation of women, and men, where we meet them. we reach them where they are. we help them understand what is at stake. we added in their voices to our movement. today, i am proud to say that emily's list is now more than two million members strong. let's make it 5 million in four years. let's do it. [applause] listt to see emily's expand its impact starting right now. i literally mean right now. immediately. join emily's list. there are a donor card that your table and there are candidates to leave you now. after all, we're in the business of winning elections. i have been in that business a while now. i have opened a lot of analysts from a family party li
clinton term and the second term of president george w. bush. gentlemen, let's start with a simple question. joe, to you, is there a second-term curse that all second-term presidents face or is that mythology? >> i think it's mythology. it's circumstances. i think this second term is starting with a little wind at his back. remember, the president came in in a terrible economic crisis. you know, if you listen to a lot of the economists, things are turning around. that's a significant difference and, you know, in politics, you face head winds and sometimes the wind behind your back. it really feels like this could be a very positive time. >> i don't think it's a myth. second terms have been tough, traditionally, but no magic to it. getting the economy under "control" will be very, very important. the president faces one problem, though, and we become almost a parliamentary system in the actions of legislative bodies and he's got a republican house that he's got to find a rhythm to work with him. president clinton did that, joe, his second term we were able to balance the budget for
, president obama held fewer news conferences than george w. bush or bill clinton. over four years the president held 79 such briefings, that is ten fewer than mr. bush and 54 fewer than president clinton. >>> starting this weekend, president obama's limousine will carry license plates with the phrase taxation without representation. it's a protest over the district of colombia not having voting representatives in congress. president clinton used the plates but george w. bush chose to use a different design without the protest phrase. >>> white house is changing the signature threshold from 25,000 to 100,000 for official responses to petitions on the website. not a bad move. it comes after a request that government build a star wars like death star that got enough signatures for an official white house response. >>> and in utah, george burnett, a pro oil activist and small business owner known as the i love drilling guy is using his new smoothy shop to take a stand against liberal spending. he charges liberals $1 more for than conservatives for a 16 ounce smoothy. >> i'm very open
. we saw that before with newt gingrich and bill clinton. and in clinton's second term, they did actually get stuff done. they worked it out between them. but does the president have that kind of relationship with john boehner, say, where we can feel optimistic that they're going to have a very different kind of relationship but can actually be more effective? >> i think there's a different kind of dynamic that speaker boehner has to deal with. i don't know him personally, but his reputation is that he can get deals done, but then he has to sell them in a caucus, some whom, a minority, but a vocal minority of whom are very rigid indeed. so i think the speaker has an opportunity to show his more magnanimous leadership and to lead the whole of the house, and not just his caucus. and as he does that, i think his relationship, not just with the president, but with the general public will improve, and i hope it does. >> one of the issues he's going to face is gun crime, gun control, gun violence, generally. he's been generally audacious in terms of the proposals he's put forward. ther
. the president read bill clinton's second inaugural. >> will we all come together or come apart? >> reporter: and abraham lincoln's, delivered to a nation divided by civil war. >> with malice toward none, with charity for all. >> reporter: a third theme, renewing our commitment to the values of our founding fathers. perhaps it's surprising the president found inspiration in the words of this former a adversa adversary. >> there can be no human rights without human liberty. >> reporter: aides tell us that, although the president disagrees with mr. bush's policy, he's moved by the speech's democratic principles. >> freedom by its nature must be chosen and defended by citizens. >> reporter: a message, aides say, the president will echo today, as he did at the white house last week. >> that most fundamental set of rights, to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. >> reporter: of all his predecessors, the president says he is most inspired by president lincoln. >> that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish fr
was for president clinton's second in operation in 1997. each one -- second inauguration in 1997. each one is special. i have and in a different place in my career each time i have done it. i have done something different with each and every inaugural parade. looking back on all four that i have done and the one we are about to do, each time it is an honor to be part of it. it is a historical event, something that will be in the record books, something people will look back on one day, and in some small way, i know i had a part of it. >> you can watch the public inaugural ceremonies as president obama begins his second term starting live monday at 7:00 a.m. eastern, and continuing all day on c-span. president obama will be sworn in at noon. we will show you the other festivities, including the capitol luncheon and the inaugural parade. >> throughout inauguration day, go online to see more videos and behind-the-scenes photos of the 57 presidential and operation at c-span.org. could also go to facebook -- you can also go to twitter or facebook. earlier today, the political action committee e
with the president's cabinet. diplomatic dignitaries and two forms presidents, president carter and clinton will be here, both president bushs will not be ascending this inauguration. things, as you say, should get under way about 11:30. the president and vice president will be introduced sometime after 11:00. we would expect them to take their seats near the front of the stage. the families, of course, will be with them. what is more stunning than the view behind me is the view that the president will have as he looks up the mall at thousands and thousands of people. while the numbers may be smaller than what he saw last year, we know that's stunning a view as you see here to address a crowd of this magnitude before him on a winter's day here. not as pleasant as it was yesterday. in fact, in those vip seats behind me, there are neatly folded blue -- look like very thick blankets for all the guests who will be on the stage here. and they will likely need them. but folks are also crowding here, the invited guests. just on this side of the west front. so all is ready here for the second inaug
in the second term. >> do you think that this is also something like a precursor to bill clinton's globalization as well? do you believe it is the operation that the president will use five years from now when he isis trying to figure o the next five yearof his life? >> well, it will be the way ta reagan and roosevelt governed by rally i rallying the american public. there three forces in politics in america, the democrats and the republicans and the public opinion. occasionally the congress will rally against the president which is known to happen quite often. when bush proposed social security reform, congress rally and that was the end of that. and sometimes the president and congress can defy public opinion, but they will pay a price. >> and bill just talked about the legislative branch and the executive branch, but let's talk about the judiciary, because president obama in the second term could have an opportunity to nominate at least one and perhaps two supreme court justices and he has made the mark and nominated two women, and the first latina ever to the high court. let's take a listen

presidents, bill clinton and president carter who will both be in attendance today. we won't see the other two living presidents george h.w. bush who was just released from the hospital and is who is now recovering, and george w. bush who sends his regrets. >> so as it happens because of the illness of the elder mr. bush, there will be only democratic presidents in attendance today. very, very unusual circumstance. the headline of the hour, the news broke moments ago by bob schieffer is that the republican leadership at this moment is in the white house having coffee with the president. perhaps a hopeful sign that agreements might come with the new year. >>> here's what's coming up the rest of this inauguration day. at 10:40, the president and mrs. obama leave the white house for the capital. the inaugural ceremonies begin at 11:30 and include the ceremonial swearing-in of vice president biden. then at 11:55, president obama will be sworn in by chief justice john roberts. and at noon, the president will deliver his inaugural address. that will be followed by lunch at the capital. then arou

how your dad, franklin roosevelt, bill clinton, to name a few, masters at building relationships to further their political aim. and president obama doesn't want to deal with those who don't like him, but not goods politics to antagonize them and gland-hand with them. >> look at bill clinton, newt gingrich, ronald reagan and speaker of the house tip o'neill, they're able to do it if they're willing to do it. you have a president who is unwilling to do it and holds a press conference just to make things worse, not to reach out, but taking a paddle to the republicans, blaming them as if they're passing budgets, and in the senate they refuse to pass. >> megyn: michael, thank you. up next, a terrifying ordeal for a woman trapped in her submerged car for 18 frigid hours. ♪ i wish my patients could see what i see. ♪ that over time, having high cholesterol and any of these risk factors can put them at increased risk for plaque buildup inheir arteries. so it's even more important to lower their cholesterol, and that's why, when diet and exercise alonaren't enough, i prescribe crestor

phase of the so-called big deal on the budget. we're of the view that just as it took during the clinton administration, it didn't happen in one fell swoop to get our economy in great shape and move toward a balanced bump started off with three phases. started with president bush's actions, the first president bush, in terms of taxation, before president clinton took office. then the actions the president took in '94 and then in '97. well, we think there's a third phase here that can set our country on a path that will allow us to get our debt, the gdp, our deficit to gdp, down around 3%, which is the basis of which all economists left, right, center, agree, are the areas which we really can begin to grow as a country. and also my grandfather used to say, with the grace of god and good will of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling, that we may very well be able to meet the goal which we set out to do, which is to have roughly a $4 trillion cut over ten years, and in the long-term deficit and put us on that path. but i didn't come
